The first album of Igor Butman Big Band “Eternal Triangle” featuring Randy Brecker was recorded in Moscow in August 2003 and engineered by the best American jazz sound engineer James Farber in November 2003 in New York. “Eternal Triangle” set a very high level of performance and quality of sound for all Russian jazz. The proof for this is that many US jazz radio stations rotated the music from “Eternal Triangle” even before the album was released!

Igor wrote seven out of nine pieces on the album - among them are "Waltz for Oksana", "French Connections", "Strange and Beatiful Siberia", and "Samba de Igor".
